Hi... Anybody know the reason why only 4 Three Stooges shorts are in PD? Anybody know how many of the cartoons were produced? I can only find one of them in the Archive. There's a compilation of cartoon intros here, anybody knows if it's complete? Alot of questions, thanks in advance.
Whoever owned the copyrights failed to renew it. Before 1975, copyrights were for a much shorter length of time with one renewal possible. Sometimes people forgot that it was expiring & didn't get the paprework to the Copyright Office in time.
Love & Peace, Clarence
